Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) predicted on BuzzFeed’s AM to DM live show on Monday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will find that Russians held compromising material over President Trump, akin to the dossier “pee tape.”

Asked by BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith why Trump would not criticize Russian President Vladimir Putin or Russia, Merkley claimed it is “likely” that Putin has dirt on Trump.

“It’s a standard strategy of Russia when people visit there who are important,” he said. “[They] try to get compromising information on them, to set them up with hookers, to tape everything that’s going on in their room.”

The Democrat added that many Trump officials had “uncomfortable” contact with Russia, but he hinted Mueller may find ties “far beyond uncomfortable.”

Smith, who oversaw the publication of the infamous Steele Dossier, asked, “Your view is the pee tape is real?”

“Something close to that,” Merkley responded.
